I certainly agree,

A straight forward approach which encourages personal enlightenment not an 
expensive and exclusive badge.

I am going to say one thing though and I think Jeremy knows what I'm going to 
say..... Motorcycles.... 

As a biker, I'm going to shoot myself in the face with a harpoon gun here and 
say, even better than that..... Step through scooters... The baddest ass 
roadside tree inspection device there is.

This week, I did a 14-mile check of roadside trees for an agricultural 
estate, every tree looked at front and rear after hopping over a hedge/ 
riding through fields. All in one day and confident I had really looked at 
the trees, not hoped all I had seen was true for the rest of the tree I had 
been unable to look at.  I also walked about 9km of footpaths.

Not problems to park on a busy a road or smash-up onto kerbs. If ther is 
nowhere to put a side stand down throw it on the ground! Gives you the time 
to really look but also blast on through areas you have no interest in.

If anyone gives you grief, nick their iPhone and the day is a double winner!

I found two significant basal decays in large trees next to A roads which 
would never have been found from a drive-by.  No, they don’t need felling, 
but closer attention and monitoring should be paid to them.

All the jokes aside, I think the most important thing is really looking at 
trees. Glancing, or not fully looking isn’t good enough.

Cheers

Dave

Thank you for posting this and thanks to Jeremy for coughing up the cash. I 
have to say this is a refreshingly straight forward accessible assessment and 
advisory paper

All,

I wondered whether it might be useful to pass on the link to this open access 
(i.e. free) journal paper written by Jeremy Barrell 
https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/03071375.2020.1854996

"The implications of recent English legal judgements, inquest verdicts, and 
ash dieback disease for the defensibility of tree risk management regimes"
